Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes…. 

My father was extremely nervous about his first funeral service as a Navy chaplain,
but the undertaker assured him that he would prompt him. All went well until, at the
close, the undertaker whispered to him to instruct the family to come up and view the
 body. “Will the family now come forward and pass around the bier,” said my father.
He cringed inwardly when he heard his own words. Later, as my father was leaving,
he overheard two of the cemetery workers talking. “I didn’t get any beer,” one said.
 “Did you?” “You heard the chaplain,” the other replied. “It was just for the family.” 😱 😳 😁😎




Tuesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “I wasn’t like every other kid, you know, who dreams about being an astronaut, I was always more interested in what bark was made out of on a tree. Richard Gere’s a real hero of mine. Sting. Sting would be another person who’s a hero. The music he’s created over the years, I don’t really listen to it, but the fact that he’s making it, I respect that.  I care desperately about what I do. Do I know what product I’m selling? No. Do I know what I’m doing today? No. But I’m here, and I’m gonna give it my best shot.”

Answer:  Zoolander! This is the speech Owen Wilson’s character (Hansel) gives for his nomination for “Best Male Model  of the Year” Award, which he wins, upsetting Ben Stiller’s (Zoolander’s) streak of three consecutive awards. 


Wednesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “The story of my life. I always get the fuzzy end of the lollipop.”

Tuesday’s Quizzler is….​

You decide to play a game with your friend where your friend places a coin under one of three cups. Your friend would then switch the positions of two of the cups several times so that the coin under one of the cups moves with the cup it is under. You would then select the cup that you think the coin is under. If you won, you would receive the coin, but if you lost, you would have to pay.
As the game starts, you realise that you are really tired, and you don’t focus very well on the moving of the cups. When your friend stops moving the cups and asks you where the coin is, you only remember a few things:
He put the coin in the rightmost cup at the start.
He switched two of the cups 3 times.
The first time he switched two of the cups, the rightmost one was switched with another.
The second time he switched two of the cups, the rightmost one was not touched.
The third and last time he switched two of the cups, the rightmost one was switched with another.
You don’t want to end up paying your friend, so, using your head, you try to work out which cup is most likely to hold the coin, using the information you remember.
Which cup is most likely to hold the coin?

Answer:   he rightmost cup.  The rightmost cup has a half chance of holding the coin, and the other cups have a quarter chance. Pretend that Os represent cups, and Q represents the cup with the coin.

The game starts like this:
Then your friend switches the rightmost cup with another, giving two possibilities, with equal chance:
Your friend then moves the cups again, but doesn’t touch the rightmost cup. The only switch possible 
is with the leftmost cup and the middle cup. This gives two possibilities with equal chance:
Lastly, your friend switches the rightmost cup with another cup. If the first possibility shown above was true, 
there would be two possibilities, with equal chance:
If the second possibility shown above (In the second switch) was true, there would be two possibilities with equal chance:
This means there are four possibilities altogether, with equal chance:

This means each possibility equals to a quarter chance, and because there are two possibilities with the rightmost cup having the coin, there is a half chance that the coin is there.


Wednesday’s Quizzler is…….

How quickly can you find out what is so unusual about this paragraph? It looks so ordinary that you would think that nothing is wrong with it at all, and, in fact, nothing is. But it is unusual. Why? If you study it and think about it, you may find out, but I am not going to assist you in any way.  You must do it without coaching. No doubt, if you work at it for long, it will dawn on you.  Who knows? Go to work and try your skill. Par is about half an hour.
